Raindrops keep fallin' on my head


I did feel a little sorry for Chris' brother and his family yesterday
As a Principle of a large Language school he has been unable to take some much needed holiday for quite a while. His first break in ages has been this trip to Wales, where it has proverbially "pissed it down" everyday they have been here !
Yesterday was a real washout for them all and even when they sought solace at the multiplex cinema in Llandudno, some daft twat drove through a huge puddle in the car park, soaking the lot of them.
They all came to ours yesterday afternoon and was just settling down with a hot cuppa, when Chris' brother, who was sat on the floor in the living room, remarked that rain was coming though the ceiling and was splashing him on the head!
Unfortunately, for him, it wasn't rain!
William for some strange reason only known to himself was peeing on the ancient floorboards in our bedroom and the wee had found a small gap through which it had drained quite merrily .
Unlike his son, he is not particularly a doggy person..

  6. What a household - it is just relentless! Spare a thought for the lot in Aberystwyth though - things could be worse.

  7. I've just seen pictures of the floods in Aberystwyth. Looks dreadful. My sympathies to all involved.

  9. Dear old William--didn't want to make a fuss or bother anybody who would get wet taking him out in the rain.

  10. What's a bit of dog wee between friends? We have friends over in Wales from The Netherlands - they have been there for a week with their caravan and are coming up here shortly - I just hope the weather improves.

  11. I really think these kinds of things only happen in Trelawnyd (and in your vicinity). This is hilarious!

  12. OH GOD, OH GOD, OH GOD, WHAT DID YOU SAY, what did he say, I am laughing and dying just reading it.

  13. You could bottle it! "Doggy Style - William's Patented Hair Restorer" and Leo's dad could star in the associated TV ad. "I've now got a full head of hair thanks to Doggy Style!"

  14. How does the proper host handle this situation? Offer an umbrella? Laugh it off as a lark? Daub off the poor fella's head with a nappy? Check your homeowner's insurance policy to see if you are covered?

  15. Oh dear, not the best holiday break of all time. Indeed, how does the ideal host behave? Tell their guests that dog pee has huge medicinal qualities and they should be immensely grateful?

  16. OMG! He's just lucky that among all your other creatures you don't keep a horse upstairs!!!

    I've been laughing so hard I knocked my cat off my keyboard!

  17. I guess you didn't start singing, "Raindrops keep fallin' on my head" then ?

    A little boy started singing this at the top of his voice after most campers had lost their tents into the River Seine after a tornado hit. We were camping there when I was a little girl & our was only one of a few tents to survive ( because my dad was a Royal Marine and he made us hang on to it )

    This little kid's exhasperated dad shouted, " I'll give you bloody raindrops...."

  18. What a pissy holiday for the poor guy. I'm curious too. What did you say to him, do?

  19. Its always the people NOT into dogs that things like this happen to. Its like a divine kind of intervention!! On a trip to Machynlleth Monty Dog decided to relieve himself all over my new skirt. It took a while for me to identify the warm feeling in my lap until it started to soak through. I have absolutely no idea why he did that either! Lily. xxx

  20. A vacation to remember!

    Did you know that Anne Murray is a 'local girl' from Nova Scotia?

  21. Ah memories. I was at a friend's house when a goodly part of the ceiling collapsed on top of me. The collapse was caused by the weight of possum piddle and pooh in that corner of the ceiling. It was some days and many showers before I felt clean again.

  22. Understandable in that case, haha!

    I despise rude drivers. >:/

  23. Well, if he wasn't a dog person before, I doubt this will have changed his mind!

  25. Golden rain from heaven...you should have come up with some sort of great story about how that's considered good luck, like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

  26. Oh, that's not going to help make him a dog person, lol!

  27. That beats any fart story! The things that happen at your house .... sooo funny!

  28. I would love to hear what Leo had to say about this incident!

    I hope you get some sunshine SOON!

  29. We went on a holiday to Wales many years ago. My grown-up daughter still refers to it as the 'swimming cows holiday'. We saw the end of a drought the week we were there and needed to use the O.S map to find different routes into town as every where was flooding. The local RFF (rusty faced farmer) had to swim his cows to different, safer pastures.
